A dramatic title isn’t it but a poignant one also, I think.
Surrounded by candlelight I would write for many hours long into the night. From the dark of the waning eve, guided by the dancing shadows from the dim lit light, my imagination flourished until my vision was in sight.
In the final days of the month of March this year of 2016 I managed to reach a fairly significant milestone. I had reached an apex and achieved something that I had been contemplating for a while as I finalised the first draft on a project that had taken up quite a lot of my time. It was and still is a labour of love, self reflection and an opportunity to discover whether or not I could do what I set out to achieve.
It was at this same time that I decided to expand my ideas and capabilities into the world of blogging, to tread new waters and to test myself anew, thus this site that you are now gazing upon (and hopefully enjoying to some extent) was created to give me an additional outlet for my writing and my many, many musings. The furious flames of fervent imagination from this Reverie fuelled Forge have been blazing for almost four months now and I am a little proud of what I have achieved so far.
*Raises head and adopts a proud face only to berate oneself almost immediately into shameful submission*
Goddamned pride, you smug bastard!
Once more I would like to extend my eternal gratitude to those of you who have decided to walk this path and take this journey with me. Words cannot truly express just how grateful I have been and still am for your time, your kind comments and your support.
However, I feel that it is now right that I should return to this project that has been waiting for me to come back to it like a small puppy that whines and cries at me until I finally submit. It is in need of revision and possibly some rewriting in certain areas and I don’t imagine it will be finished for quite a while yet. I do wish that I could explain more about what I am referring to, and one day I sincerely hope that it will be in such a state of refinement and completion that I will be able to tell you all about it. One day. And that is a day that I am genuinely looking forward to.
I shall not be abandoning my efforts here though, the fires of the Forge shall remain lit for as long as I am able to keep writing with any modicum of worth and I will be honoured if you decide to stay with me for the long haul. If I could reach into this computer and shake your hand, I would.
Once more I thank you all and I look forward to reading more from you lovely folks. Take care.
